While in Denver, Colorado recently I spent almost an entire day in the Denver Art Museum. I have been in quite a few museums and I have to say this one was spectacular. Not only were the exhibits amazing, there were hands on activities where children could learn about a specific piece of art and create their own, and comfortable chairs to sit and take in the art, there were also journals throughout the museum that allowed visitors to share their thoughts on the works.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff and the quality of the exhibits. If you ever have a chance to go and visit this museum, do it.
I was so inspired by this visit, not only the museum but the city as well, that the next day I sat down at an outside café and sketched for several hours.
Here are a few of the images from the museum that inspired me:
